According to the announcement made by the Sukhwinder Singh Sukhu government of Himachal Pradesh in the budget, the government employees of the state will get the benefit of increased dearness allowance from April 1, 2024.

The benefit of DA increased by the Mamata government of West Bengal will be available from May 1, 2024, i.e. the salary will increase in the account from June.

DA of Himachal Pradesh employees increased by 4 percent

In fact, before the implementation of the code of conduct for the Lok Sabha elections, the Sukhwinder Singh Sukhu government of Himachal Pradesh had announced a 4 percent increase in its budget to be presented in February. After this, in March the state government had issued a notification regarding DA.

Under this, more than 2 lakh employees and officers of the state, judicial service officers and teachers getting salary under the pay scales of University Grants Commission will now get the benefit of 38% DA. This announcement will benefit 2.66 lakh employees across the state.

Employees will be given increased dearness allowance at the rate of 4% from April 1, 2024. This increased DA benefit will be available in the April salary received in May. The same is payable for pensioners and family pensioners from July 1, 2022. It will be given from April 1, 2024. Now two installments of dearness allowance for employees and pensioners are left. This includes installments for January, 2023 and July, 2023.

Since the code of conduct for Lok Sabha elections is in force, the Himachal government has requested the central government for an advance loan. A request has been sent by the State Government to the Government of India, in which it has been said that the loan authorization which is normally given in May 2024, should be given in the month of April itself. This will create a gap between the election code of conduct regarding salary, pension and loan. -Committed expenses like payments have to be met by the state government. If advance loan is not approved, there will be difficulty in meeting these expenses.
